I just had my mucocele removed yesterday. I was told i could ice it right after surgery but not to put any ice packs on it 24 hours post-surgery. My lip was pretty swollen when i woke up this morning but not too bad. The throbbing is minimal now too. The only thing that is really bothering me is the stitches. My mucocele was on the inside of my bottom lip so the stitches tend to rub up against my teeth and the loose ends feel like they get caught in my teeth. It's really hard to eat or talk because that side of my mouth feels really tight because of the stitches. Has anyone experienced any problems with their stitches? do they loosen up on their own? I won't be getting mine removed until ten days from now but was told they would probably fall out on their own. Did anyone's stitches come out on their own and about how long post-surgery did that happen? Once you get your stitches removed how long is it before you begin to feel normal? I read someone's post about their lip not going back to normal, is that common?
